Reality Steve

Bachelorette Desiree Spoilers

“Reader Emails,” “Dr. Reality Steve,” & More of Desiree’s Guys

In Tuesday’s column I had mentioned that since guys were arriving in LA this past Monday, there’s no way filming was gonna start Sunday. They never keep them sequestered that long, so I figured filming was gonna start tomorrow night. Well, I’m hearing it’s being moved up another day and filming for Desiree’s season actually begins tonight at the mansion, which is pretty much on schedule with when filming has begun the last 5 seasons so no real change.

A lot of emails in the last couple weeks asking about Lindsay and what was the reasoning behind her not becoming the “Bachelorette.” I never heard the reason, but after her conference call with the media on Tuesday, where she was gushing about a new boyfriend, I’m guessing that played a role in her not getting it. Just a hunch. That was the first I’d heard of that. Had no idea, nor do I have a clue who this guy is. Since she didn’t name him, maybe her and Tierra can double date now with their boyfriends-who-shall-remain-nameless-yet-we’ll-talk-about-them-publicly. Ummmm, ok.

I did a little research after the finale yesterday just to share with everyone regarding the lead’s and what they say after the finale. You know, I’ve said many times that we ALWAYS see the lead on the ATFR gushing about their choice, how in love they are, this is the person they’re going to marry, etc and they all end up breaking up. But still people seem to have short term memory when it comes to that because they only want to remember the latest couple and how in love they claim to be. So here is Sean’s blog from Tuesday after the finale aired. Says all the right things. Then again, so did Emily, Ben, and Brad in their final blogs. Check em’ out. Remember, all those people ended up breaking up, yet, look what they were writing the day after the finale aired.

Emily’s final blog
Ben’s final blog
Brad’s final blog

Just a little perspective for everyone, that’s all. You’re welcome.

Selma appeared back on Star 94.1 FM in San Diego after the finale to share her thoughts on the season in general. Quite a few interesting things to say, and she’s sort of become this season’s outspoken contestant. We haven’t heard many who have talked as openly in the public as she has, and I gotta say, it’s quite refreshing. The PC contestants who just say the same things and don’t speak outside the box when talking about the time on this show don’t interest me. These interviews most certainly do:

Also, “Burning Love” episode 10 is up, and for my money, this was easily their best episode to date. Hot Karl? Are you kidding me? Genius. Google it if you’re confused. Not to mention the return of Blaze, which has Julie all, ummmmm, damp.

On to the latest confirmed contestants for Desiree’s season. In case you didn’t see my tweet yesterday, Trevor and Erik are not contestants on their season. Lets just chalk it up to a couple jack offs screwing around and having a little fun. Hope you enjoyed your 5 minutes. Their profiles are down, and no one will remember them anyway, so I don’t really see what the pleasure people got out of that, but whatever. Must be lonely or something. There’s always a couple that sneak in there every season, so I apologize for not doing my due diligence on them. Which is ironic, because Trevor and Erik were the two guys I was questioning the most of the 8 I had posted Tuesday. Oh well. I will try not to let it happen again. Anyway, here are 3 more definitely on this season. More coming next week.

    To the guy that emailed RS about the girlfriend whose dad recently just died… I have a thought as to why she may be acting like this… She lost her father the first man in her life, someone who she loved and was close to… Maybe she is afraid to lose the other man in her life YOU and that is why she is pulling away to lessen the pain of losing you. Maybe you should reassure her how you feel about her, tell her she’s been a little distant and that you want her to know you love her, aren’t going anywhere. and are there for her if she ever needs to talk about anything….

    Ok… I just want to punctuate for all you AshLee bashers — You know. Those of you with all the “cray-cray” comments and such regarding AshLee’s ‘come to Jesus’ confrontation with Sean?? — that Sean “said the same thing to Lindsay” according to Selma.

    Oh, and while I’m on the subject, please stop trying to make “cray cray” happen. lol It’s stupid.

  3. liz123

    March 14, 2013 at 11:21 AM

    I was just about to mention what Jacey said. According to Selma, Sean also told Lindsay at some point that she’d be the last one standing. That confuses the issue somewhat & it would explain why Lindsay was so confident the final day, but I don’t know if I believe that. If it’s true, then why didn’t Lindsay mention anything about it in any of her interviews or at the ATFR? And why is Selma the one telling people when Selma has obviously already shown that she has a pretty strong dislike of Sean now? And what if he did say it to her after the hometowns & then he changed his mind? I don’t know. Maybe I just want to see the best in people, but I just can’t see him willfully, purposefully outright lying to either of them.

    -Didn’t Brooke’s dad (from Aaron’s season) not want to be on camera but some rumor came out later that he was in prison?

    -To the guy whose gal lost her dad: I think like another poster said, talk to her. Because losing a parent really messes with your head. Either you weren’t close w/ the parent and you have terrible regrets or you were close and you envision all the lost time together. She *loves* her girlfriends differently than the *love* w/ you. You being male and she lost the signif. male in her history–not to sound weird but there is a chance she’s viewing all men in her life differently at the moment. Offering the idea of going to counseling w/ her could be helpful.

    -Anyone else horrified a HS teacher is using Bachelor show in the classroom for extra credit?!

    I’m kind of thinking that Sean and Catherine are going to get married. Just because they are waiting for marriage (well at least to be with each other). I know not everyone is the same, but I’ve known a few people who were saving themselves for marriage, and ended up getting married after only 3-4 months of dating. A few even said they were rushing into marriage because they “loved” the other person so much and wanted to be able to sleep with them. I can totally see Sean being the same way with his whole born again virginity.

  6. jacey

    March 14, 2013 at 11:57 AM

    @Liz123, All good points. However, why would Selma discredit herself by lying about something that could easily be disproved? My guess is she’s contractually muzzled from saying anything too disparaging about the franchise or she risks heavy monetary penalties — otherwise, we’d really hear some juicy “truths”.

    And..
    She was there and in communication with Lindsay. Who knows why Lindsay didn’t mention it at ATFR or in interviews? She’s not denying it, either.

    You can’t see him willfully, purposefully outright lying? Seriously??? Have you never encountered a guy think’n with his second head before… ever????

  7. Dianne

    March 14, 2013 at 12:18 PM

    I honestly take whatever Selma has to say with a grain of salt. I don’t take her as being very credible, so sure, she’s going to be slightly negative against Sean..that’s pretty natural I’d say. At least she didn’t come off like crazy AshLee..yikes!

    To the person who wrote to me (I was the “affair girl”)–just wanted to let you know that I cut off all contact with Mike as of March 1st. I haven’t spoken to him, emailed, texted, nothing. Nor do I intend to. It actually hasn’t been as hard as I expected. But I did want to correct a few things. 1) I don’t have any children from my first marriage, I am expecting my first child this summer. 2) I would never leave Jack for Mike. That had never ever been a consideration ever. EVER. My question (originally) was more to why I couldn’t get Mike out of my life, even peripherally. And I agree with everything you said. That’s why. Because he represents easy fantasy. Once I got my head around that, it was pretty easy to let it go. Thanks for your advice.

    I’m amazed at the number of declarations and suppositions stated as ‘facts’ among the comments — some actually discarding the statements of people who were actually involved in the show, and replacing them with their own absolutes — as if they themselves were involved in the show. To you I say… You’re entitled to your opinions but in the words of another poster “Holy overly involved, Batman!” Step back from the breach.

    @LIZ 1234 said “I don’t know. Maybe I just want to see the best in people” Hahaha are you kidding me? This coming from YOU when a few days ago you were bullying people on here calling them stupid and low class because you didn’t like their comments?

    Steve Says- “Is your life that void of any sort of entertainment, that all you can do all day is tweet at a bunch of celebrities in hopes that one of them writes back “thanks,” so then you can run and scream to your friends, “OH MY GOD!!!! ”

    Funny how he used to Jennifer Love Hewitt up the ying and now he is making fun of people that do it. His life revolves around this crap and he slams ppl for it.

    To the guy whose girlfriend lost her father recently:

    The information you gave has raised some basic questions in my head. Based on what say I’m implying your relationship was heading heading towards marriage 1) Did you/Do you also have a relationship and/or rapport with her parents? 2) Do you honestly know how they felt about you and your relationship with their daughter?

    If there was any trepidation on the part of her parents about you, that could be coming through now. But if that is not the case, then perhaps she is overwhelmed right now with managing her family relationships that she is too emotionally/mentally/physically exhausted for you right now. Do you know if she is spending more time with her mother? Her mom or other family members may be overly reliant on her now and that what is troubling her.

    Anyway, be patient. It usually takes a year for people to recover from a traumatic death in their family. That’s why they say you shouldn’t make any major decisions immediately after the death of a spouse. Cut her some slack and continue to be supportive. Grievance counseling may be a good thing for her entire family.

  13. liz123

    March 14, 2013 at 1:06 PM

    @jacey, how could what Selma said easily be proven as false? Nobody was in that Fantasy Suite except Lindsay & Sean. I’m saying maybe Lindsay told some of the girls that to save face (to explain why she was so confident) on one of their drunken nights out & Selma repeated it. It can’t be proven either way. And no, Lindsay isn’t denying it, but she isn’t confirming it either.

    Yes, I’ve come across guys thinking with the other head before, of course, but they were usually trying to get me into bed- thus the saying. If we assume the “not currently sleeping with anybody” thing to be true about Sean (which I do b/c girls who’ve slept with him in the recent past would be coming out of the woodwork if it was a lie), then what would his motivation be for saying that to multiple girls? Wouldn’t he have to expect to be confronted with that on TV at some point? And if his motivation was not to sleep with them, then what was it?

    Everyone’s thoughts (especially on this subject) are only speculation as you point out, but if your “theory” doesn’t have any logic to back it up then it’s just a matter of who do you personally like better. I don’t personally have a preference, but it’s pretty obvious you’re biased towards AshLee (& Lindsay), so you’re not being very objective.

  14. liz123

    March 14, 2013 at 1:08 PM

    @lobsterandbeer, who & when did I call anyone stupid & low class?!! I’m sorry, but I honestly don’t remember that. Are you sure you don’t have me confused with someone else?

  15. ironside

    March 14, 2013 at 1:10 PM

    @liz123: I agree with you about Selma. Her cred is crud. She flashes her t*ts on youtube but won’t kiss the bachelor because she doesn’t want her mom to see? Pulleeze!!!

    March 14, 2013 at 1:16 PM

    @ironside, I was the one who said Selma’s “cred was crud” as you put it; although I didn’t say it exactly that way. Jacey thinks Selma is totally trustworthy. I liked Selma fine on the show, but I don’t think she’s got honesty written all over her either.

  18. liz123

    March 14, 2013 at 1:23 PM

    @lobsterandbeer, I remember what you’re talking about now! Yes, I did say that chick wasn’t very smart, but that wasn’t a matter of opinion. It was obvious. Also, I would never point out someone’s grammar or spelling errors just out of the blue to be a bully b/c it’s a hobby or something. Trust me, I would be doing that much more often if I just wanted to be a b*tch for sport. I said that about that particular person b/c she was being an a**hole toward Asians & I didn’t think it was right. That led me to nitpick her other flaws. Sorry, I was having a bad day & I dislike bigots very much- as we all should. You were quite the bully yourself that day, so go ahead & remove the halo now.

  19. goosiegirl

    March 14, 2013 at 1:48 PM

    I think Selma needs to stay out of it. It seems this is her way to stay in the spotlight, since her relationship with Arie didn’t work out. Also, I think I read somewhere that she is blasting Arie as well? All this is going to do is give her a bad reputation.
    And in regards to what Sean said to either Lindsay or Ashlee, he probably told them not to worry because he didn’t want them to worry about it at that present time (possibly ruining their time together), and both girls probably took it as they didn’t have to worry about it at all because they thought he was choosing them. From my experience, guys are very present-minded, while women think about the future, and many times it leads to a miscommunication.

  20. goosiegirl

    March 14, 2013 at 1:52 PM

    Liz123, if lobsterandbeer is referring to what you think, I don’t think you were being a bully at all. The person you were referring to wasn’t that smart at all, generalizing everything (ie all Asian women act this way) and needed to be told that was wrong.

  21. jacey

    March 14, 2013 at 1:58 PM

    @Liz123 – Oh boy!… so *now* ya know what I’m thinking??? See how you jump to conclusions and state things as if they’re ‘facts?’ Quit it! Or not. After this, idc.

    I think Selma is “trustworthy?” So now you know what I think? You have no idea what I think of Selma because I-have-never-said. I merely took a common-sense, extrinsic look at the radio interview, paired that with what we do actually know, or can *logically* conclude, and make a statement I qualified as my *opinion.*

    Since you’ve already been called out on attacking posters who’s view you don’t agree, and your logic confounds me, so I’m gonna let your assertions stand on their merits.

    When my little one goes off on repeated tangents that I have trouble following… I air-kiss him, give him a reassuring smile and walk away. Consider yourself ‘kissed.’

  22. lobsterandbeer

    March 14, 2013 at 2:27 PM

    @liz123 : excuse me but NO I was NOT being a bully myself just because I called you out on being one. All I did was mention that I disagreed with you attacking people’s characters because you didn’t like their comment. Why not disagree with their comment instead of being so mean? Everyone has a right to an opinion here, lots of them you may not agree with, that certainly doesn’t make you a better or smarter person. I am just appalled SOME people take it to another level by calling the actual person names, and if that makes you feel better about yourself then fine, I just deal with bullying every day and it sickens me. You are a long time poster here, you and BFW, and you should be setting a better example. There..See how that is done? I disagree with what you SAY without calling you names or saying bad things about YOU as a person. Not that hard!
    In case you forget you said this :

    BFW “Do you think you could add an IQ test to the log in screen and thus eliminate @serene and @shassyshass from logging on?”
    Liz123 “Good Lawd. These two are going to make me lose my mind. I think those 2 combined are killing brain cells faster than smoking weed. I just have to give this one little tip b/c it just won’t leave me alone until I do. @Serene, honey, please look up the definition of “implicated” & don’t use the word again until you are sure you know what it means. That may help you on your college apps, you never know”

  23. liz123

    March 14, 2013 at 2:32 PM

    @jacey, sorry didn’t mean to put words in your mouth. I thought that’s what you meant. No need to get so fired up. I take it back, I take it back. Geeesus. I have no interest in pushing my theory on you or making you change your mind. Just stating my theory & my opinion. No need to patronize. I don’t give a shit about Sean or Catherine or Lindsay or AshLee. I truly don’t. It’s just something to discuss. Racism, on the other hand, is a REAL issue & I will stand my ground on that one. I was calling out a poster for being a racist jerk & that’s what lobsterandbeer was referring to, not simply for disagreeing with me in the way you & I disagree about what could’ve been said between Sean & his ladies. that has absolutely nothing to do with what you & I were discussing. I have absolutely in no way attacked you, jacey. You are acting as though I have b/c of a totally different issue being discussed from another thread. It makes no sense, IN MY OPINION.

  24. liz123

    March 14, 2013 at 2:36 PM

    I said that because that person was being a racist!! If (s)he was just being dumb & not attacking an entire race of human beings, I would never have said that. Period. I would never have just come out of nowhere & attacked someone’s intelligence. It’s not fair & it’s not truthful that you are not putting what I said in context. It’s amazing to me how many people in 20-freaking-13 are still supporting racism!

  25. liz123

    March 14, 2013 at 2:42 PM

    @lobsterandbeer, you also called me lower class. You said we should leave because nobody would miss us. You said that I wasn’t nearly as intelligent as I thought. That’s just as bad as anything I said & not nearly as original. Why is it you think that I”m not smart & I’m lower class, lobsterandbeer? Because I’m not as enlightened as you since I don’t “laugh” at the “variety of opinions” (i.e., racism) like you do? You’re right about that. I don’t think racism is funny. We can agree to disagree there b/c you’re never going to convince me I’m not as intelligent as you simply b/c I refuse to think “Asain whore” jokes are funny.

  26. iheartvino

    March 14, 2013 at 2:55 PM

    I don’t think any of Liz123’s above comments would qualify as bullying. I’ve seen a lot worse on here and don’t think it’s all that bad when someone calls someone else out for being completely ignorant or especially racist.

    Not having met either Sean or Selma (obviously) I can only go off of what they’ve shown via blogs, interviews, TV, etc and I would easily take Sean at his word over Selma. As others have said, anything any of us say is purely speculation as the only ones that know what was said in Sean and Lindsay’s fantasy suite is Sean and Lindsay.

    *other shows*
    What is up with all the reruns this week? I noticed both Chicago Fire and Nashville were reruns last night, and I don’t think Scandal is new tonight either.

    @Randais, I am two episodes behind on The Following but have loved every episode that I’ve seen so far. Thanks for the heads up about the most recent episode being extra gory. I will try to cover my eyes or look away if it’s something way over the top!

    Forgot to mention the reason why I had logged in to comment, but got distracted by reading the comments before mine. Anyway, regarding Des’s guys, I think the soccer player dude looks a lot like Bradley Cooper. A less hot version maybe. 🙂

    March 14, 2013 at 3:22 PM

    I’ve been catching episodes of both “The Following” and “Deception” OD. Keep waiting for both to move beyond cliches and/or gratuitous sex and violence. Hasn’t happened so far. I think Deception will be cancelled. I heard “The Following” has been picked up for another season. My guess is if it continues on it’s current trajectory of over-the-top plot twists which you have to suspend all beliefs to get your head around, it won’t retain a ‘following.’

  29. liz123

    March 14, 2013 at 3:30 PM

    @iheart, so far, I think Des has an awesome group of guys (based on looks only since that’s about all we have now)! I remember when they first released Emily’s guys & I was like “Whaat?? These guys for her?? Ugh!”. But if we’re going on looks alone, Des is going to have a fun-filled season!

    March 14, 2013 at 3:34 PM

    @liz123 : I never said you were any of those things, I said you should put yourself in your own category and how would you like to be called stupid and lower class? I never said I was more intelligent than you either haha I think you should read again, or not! All I am saying is I don’t understand why you can’t argue on a comment without judging and putting down the person. I am sure you are a swell person, I just don’t agree with your comments. I’m curious if you would call people those names to their face? Regardless, I don’t care if people are making ridiculous comments on here, If I disagree I definitely don’t start calling them stupid, I move on…like I am doing here. Agree to disagree have a nice day.

  31. liz123

    March 14, 2013 at 4:10 PM

    I respect your opinion completely, but I definitely would call someone ignorant and low class to their face if they were being a racist. in my mind, that’s a whole lot different than calling somebody stupid and low class because you disagree with their opinion. in fact, I rather enjoy the different opinions and this comment section. that’s what makes it interesting and fun to debate, but being a racist or not being a racist is not simply a difference of opinion to me. now that I think about it, I guess that’s why we see this differently. you saw it as me bullying somebody and I saw it as me standing up to the ultimate bully- a racist

    @iheart – everyone’s tolerance levels are different but for me, this weeks episode far surpassed mine. I’m with Jayce, it’s old and stomach turning.

    @jayce – I too have been keeping up with Deception and feel as you do, they really need to “go somewhere” with this show.

    To the guy whose girlfriend lost a parent…….try and get her to look into counseling. I’m not a mental health professional but know a lot about the grieving process. I’m probably a lot older then her, but am still reeling from losing my mom over a year ago. She sounds very depressed. Give her lots of love and support, and find a good mental health professional!

    *AI*
    Has anyone heard anything but the “stuck in traffic” excuse for last night? Not that it matters, but that was so disrespectful to everyone involved! I read an article last week that said she’s so unpredictable, the kids get really intimidated by her words and style, or lack of.

It could be that she is ‘normal’ around her other friends even though she doesn’t feel like it, but doesn’t want to bring them down. When she’s with you, she doesn’t feel she needs to put on the show of everything being okay, and this is when she lets her memories take over.
    You won’t know until you talk to her, but I know thats how I’ve been. I don’t want to ‘burden’ my friends with my problems, because they all feel the need to offer a solution on how to ‘get over it’. My husband doesn’t…he just lets me be, lets me get upset, and holds me when I need it. Am I wrong to do this? Probably, but you do what you can to get through.
    Just talk to her

    I think some of u need to go back and watch the selma interview again because she didn’t say he told lindsay she’d be the last one standing. She was saying in regard to ashlee that she thought he said something that made her think that and said don’t worry about the other girls just pay attention to what we have because he said that to lindsay too. But of the leads say that to the contestants when they start worrying about the other girls and getting insecure. They don’t usually say it constantly. I think sean didn’t know how to deal with the multiple affections and would tell them that so they didn’t over analyze and question him but that’s not saying they r the one he wants and no one else. Ashlee didn’t. Understand that cu she’s crazy. Lindsay didn’t day anything cuz she’s classier and knows sean didn’t lie to her even if she may have taken it as assurance at the time that he’d pick her.

    So Zach is from Newport Beach and Dez lives in Newport Beach. That is interesting maybe their paths already crossed or are part of the 6 degrees of separation.

    @Bachelorfan1, I can’t and won’t speak for others, but as for me, I’ll believe my own ears…

    We can bend anything to our own interpretations. Probably Not such a good idea to leap to conclusions and change what was actually said when what was said is at everyone’s mouse/finger tip.

    Here’s the dialogue verbatim:
    Selma: “Ok, I personally think that he said something along those lines. I don’t know if he straight said I don’t have feelings for those other women, but he said something that made her think that he doesn’t have feelings for the other women … He was like — you know like, oh don’t even worry about the other two women. It’s you at the end. Because he said that to Lindsay, too. So… I believe her.”

    That transcription took 7-10 mins I’ll never get back.

    I’ll refrain from changing her words or interpreting what she said to fit into preconceived notions. Nope. I’ll leave that to those who have already illustrated a great propensity for such.

    Invariably, there will be the usual motley crew who, if all else fails, will declare Selma’s input invalid because of… well, I’m sure they’ll impart their pearls of wisdom, shortly.

    liz123. i agree! whats up with that? des gets all the cuties and emily got..? ; ) and just for the record, its admirable when anyone defends a bully or racist.. i think there is some miscommunication on here, but i think everyone wants and hopes for the same thing. respect. its different when steve makes generalized sexual jokes, but hes not stereotyping a race.. i didnt care for the asian jokes either, i just chose not to say anything..

    **the following**
    jacey, are u thinking some of this show seems pretty unrealistic? bc i completely agree..i love the show, but how found myself thinking many times, “yea right! that would never happen!”

    SPOILER ALERT
    The handwriting is on the wall. Just look at the body language and seating distance between Sean and Catherine in their numerous ATFR media interviews (especially the Huff Post live – a seat apart and zero touching). The breakup will happen after DWTS or Bachelorette (most likely for ratings reason) to minimize the blow on Sean’s repute. Sean can always give an excuse, “our values do not mesh.”
    Sad to say but Reality Steve is right.

    When I saw Zack from Newport Beach’s pic, I thought he was attractive. Now hopefully his personality is attractive as well. Des is a fun person and reminds me of Ali. The last 3 bachelors have been complete duds…boring and bland, but Ashley and Ali were entertaining with a fun spirit.

    @Sunny, I agree – he is very attractive and I hope his personality attractive as well. I can’t really judge from the video because I think that video is supposed to be a joke. The video is of his brother in law and hes married to his sister with two kids. If Des picks him, they wouldn’t have to do any moving since I believe Des is in Newport Beach.

    I thought she was somewhere in CA but was not sure the town. That would make moving a non issue. Just can’t see Catherine and Sean having a real relationship with such a great distance if they don’t move in together or at least have her move near him. He obviously never considered moving anywhere near any woman he would choose.

    Read that he will move to CA while doing DWTS and she will stay in Seattle. Huh? Hardly what I would call becoming familiar with your supposed partner’s ways. I won’t be shocked when I read they have split and will be amazed if they do marry.

    I don’t know about others, but I personally am rooting for Sean & Catherine. I’ll say I’m cautiously optimistic. I thought this interview (& the others linked in the reel below it) showed them in a different light than the parts of the GMA interview I saw. In the GMA interview, Cat didn’t seem to thrilled with the DWTS gig & the wedding planning, but she’s seems supportive & excited here. Maybe she was just uncomfortable with the camera at GMA & she’s starting to relax more? What are everyone else’s thoughts? http://www.wetpaint.com/the-bachelor/video/sean-and-catherine-reveal-how-they-kept-their-engagement-a-secret

    sunnyside, based on what I have heard in recent interviews, Catherine is spending most of her time in LA while Sean is doing DWTS. Some have speculated that she might be staying with Lesley since they became good friends on the show and Lesley lives in the LA area. Not sure if that’s true but it would make sense.

    Liz123, this is the first time I have found myself at all somewhat “emotionally invested” (as RS always calls it) in anyone from this series. This was the first time i actually teared up during the proposal and felt their connection, as lame as that may sound to a lot of people. I’m rooting for them too, but that being said will not be surprised at all if they break up within a few months after DWTS. I think if they can get out of the spotlight and go live a somewhat normal life together, then that’s the only way they’ll have a shot. RS is right though, it’s hard to ignore the track record of previous Bachelors.

    If after DWTS we hear that Sean has been offered another “opportunity” in the entertainment world and takes it, then it will be hard not to accept that his prorities have shifted. He also signed on with Hydroxycut this week, but I’m not sure how big or how much time or commitment that takes.

    And I know this isn’t the most reputable source, but at least some of it has got to be truthful right? lol

    @iheart, Wetpaint is also reporting the Hydroxycut deal & Sean’s even tweeted about it (so says Wetpaint, I don’t follow him on Twitter myself). I don’t know how you could turn down deals like DWTS and endorsing a diet pill. It’s such easy money & who doesn’t need money these days? I’m not saying he doesn’t enjoy the fame, I don’t know the guy, but I can see how even if you disliked being in the spotlight, you’d put up with it to make that kind of money!
